*Kartik*: This is ridiculous!!!
*Naira*: What happened?
*Kartik*: I really can’t differentiate who’s Arti and who’s Aira. I had Aira until I came to room, then after all the party, when I came back, I saw both beside each other and got confused.
*Naira*: Wait…. This is Aira and this is Arti.
*Kartik*: Well how do you know that?
*Naira*: That’s why I am a mother.
*Kartik*: I agree. So the name…. How did you get reminded of ‘Arti’?
*Naira*: There’s nothing I don’t know about you I suppose. If I can’t even remember what you said, then how come I will be your sherni?
*Kartik*: Yes, you know what? I…. I was really surprised. I mean…..
And starts tearing up.
*Naira*: Why would you cry when we three are here? Aira and Arti, ask your Mendhak papa not to cry.
The babies let out small giggles.
*Naira*: So, how is your life now?
*Kartik*: Why? It’s been the same….
*Naira*:Uh oh! I guess you’re deprived of a new Papa’s work.
*Kartik*: You mean what?
*Naira*: Come and change the diapers.
*Kartik*: Wait WHAT! Are you kidding me?
*Naira*: Obviously I am not kidding you. Come on, change it. It’s not one, it’s two.
*Kartik*: No no no. I can’t do that.
*Naira*: What? Then how will you be a good Papa if you don’t do this to your princesses? You want to prove you can be a Mendhak to them too?
*Kartik*: No… I mean ok.
And goes to pick out diapers.
Naira instructs him. He does so.
All the way, Kartik’s face is funnier than anything.
*Kartik*: Task completed.
In his mind,
*Kartik*:”I hope Naksh does this as well”
And let’s out an evil smile.
*Naira*: Stop dreaming, go change your clothes and get back to sleep.
*Kartik*: Alright. But today at least……
*Naira*: I have to get the babies to sleep… Go change your clothes slowly…
*Kartik*: Naira, don’t change the subject….
And there he goes.
He comes back only to find the babies wrapped by Naira asleep.
*Kartik*: Like Mom the babies….
Turns off the light and goes to sleep.
*Kartik*: WHO’S CRYING???!!!WHO’S CRYING???!!!!
*Naira*: Shoooo Kartik….
*Kartik*: What the hell Naira….
*Naira*: They didn’t sleep the whole night. So they will be asleep in few minutes or so.
Hands him Arti…..
*Naira*: Make her sleep….
And sings lullaby for Aira.
*Kartik*: This is not fair….
*Naira*: What’s not fair?
*Kartik*: You handed me Arti and asked me to make her sleep but you’re singing lullaby just for Aira.
*Naira*: Parents have equal responsibilities. So I gave you her. Just make her sleep.
Naira makes Aira sleep fast. But Kartik is clueless.
*Naira*: You try making her sleep. I am going to prepare breakfast since Aunty ji is alone in the kitchen.
*Kartik*: Just go.
And makes an angry silly face.
About half an hour later Naira comes. She finds Arti asleep peacefully. Kartik is sleeping beside them.
He doesn’t wake up.
*Kartik*: Oh Yeah!
*Naira*: It’s a great job that you made her sleep.
*Kartik*: Did you wake me up to tell this thing? Now my sleep is lost.
*Naira*: You shouldn’t have slept. Now get ready and come downstairs for breakfast. Between how did you make her sleep?
*Kartik*: I told her our love story. She got bored and slept.
*Naira*: Ohoooo I too find you boring.
*Kartik*: (Clears throat) What did you say Mrs.Rishikesh ?
*Naira*: Nothing. Get ready.
Naira is serving everyone breakfast.
*Akhilesh*: Kartik, it seems like you haven’t slept in days….
*Kartik*: Yes indeed. I am not gonna hide it anymore. Many know what’s the matter.
*Swarna*: Even if you don’t hide it, we all know what’s and what will be the matter.
He is embarrassed.
*Manish*: Because I didn’t sleep until you were 2 years old.
*Dadi*: Please stop making fun of my Kittu. You eat.
*Kartik*: Thanks Dadi.
*Sulekha*: After all, like who does the babies look.
*Kartik*: Chachi, it’s been only 3 days…. They look like potatoes.
*Naira*: Stop and eat.
They here the babies crying.
*Kartik*: MY BABIES!!!!!!!!!
And runs to their room.
Everyone look in awe.
*Swarna*: Very strange… He fails in caring himself and is good in this.
*Naira*: Leave it Aunty ji. I’ll too continue breakfast after sometime.
Precap:Kartik sleepless the other night.
